Luis Suarez has urged Liverpool to heed his wishes as he continues to be linked with a summer departure from Anfield.

Divisive

Suarez has been a divisive figure during his time at Liverpool, with misdemeanors ranging from his racial abuse of Manchester United's Patric Evra, to a perennial debate about diving and finally his biting of Ivanovic. Liverpool's fans have stuck by him throughout, recognising his brilliance as a player, and he admits that he will always appreciate their support. "The love I have for Liverpool I will never forget," he added. "I love the city, the club and the people and everyone is welcome. All I ask is for respect for all the things that have been said." Suarez has also conceded that some of his critics may be right in condemning his on-field theatrics. "There are moments of importance (in games) and I have lived football in a very particular way since childhood," he said. "But I know I can play tricks. "Sometimes I protest too much to the referee. I have to take it a bit better."
